I’ve been taking enemas for a considerable number of years, and capacity has always been a conundrum. I have to agree with Switchable that a lot of the ‘web-based” articles seem to be based on precious little science. I once read an article that talked about volume having been assessed using cadavers. The article mentioned that the volumes achieved were not necessarily representative of total capacity of a live human because the intestinal structure of the cadavers were no longer pliable.
I don’t think that I’ve ever taken an enema that I didn’t wonder how much of my intestine I was actually filling. If you think about it though, at any given time, regardless of whether you may be getting clear returns, your intestine contains some indeterminate amount of feces, if only a coating or that container in the folds of the wall, as well as, some again indeterminate amount of air.
This being the case, using a double balloon nozzle (which I have used rather extensively) to try to determine your maximum volume seems very risky. I have always been careful with using retention nozzles to use them only to allow me to retain a volume that I could tolerate with little pain (let your body tell you its limits), not to try to achieve higher volumes.
Please don’t misunderstand the point of my comments, I am in no way trying to discourage enema us and play. I continue to take enemas multiple times a week and I enjoy a big enema and the resulting sexual stimulation as much as any here, I’m just concerned about people that speak of having used double balloon nozzles to aid in exploring maximum capacity.
I’m concerned that members might miss this distinction and overdue things. I’m sure that some of the more medically educated amongst the membership could share their comments with regard to the ramifications of trying to sell your anus and continue to fill or fill a partner beyond the physical limit. The last thing you would want to experience, whether with yourself or your partner, while filling, is an increasing level of discomfort followed by a sudden release as the intestinal wall breaches into your abdominal cavity, an air pocket being forced past the cecum or the hydrostatic pressure crushing a vital organ.
Each and every one of us is unique, in volume and in strength of the intestinal walls etc. An error could be a life changing mistake. Think about it. Please lay safe.
